Please help on identifying model, year, opinions about this instrument.
Serial is 86 4202
Is it a series 2?
Any feedback would be helpful.

The 86 in the SN says it was born in 1986. The lack of a letter after the 86 denotes Series. The presense of CVQ knobs instead of Q switches, and the master volume, means Series II rather than Series I. That's the Balanced Omega body, which is not very common. Beautiful bass! The position of the neck pick-up logo, however, indicated that it is mounted 180° off.

cozmik..does it matter the PU is malaligned, I guess it doesn't since it is a single coil reading either side.

I dunno - a friend of mine told me he put his p/ups out of phase by reversing one magnet (the out-of-phase tone changed with the volume settings of the respective p/ups); would this be the same? Someone who knows more than I please chime in! (That does not narrow the field much around here). The aesthetics of it would bother me, but that's just me.
